Looks like it would be safer than climbing around the stand.

wonder how you would get this up that high in the tree safely.

Where do you go while letting the two sides of the platform back down???

thumbs up From: The Buck Stopper
Looks good, especially for the hunter who is not very agile. While I won't personally ever buy one of these, it looks like a good idea.

thumbs down From: big bill
Once you are up then how do you get back down through the hinged opening ? Especially at dark.

thumbs up From: Gator
I've had one for past two years. It is not a stand you want to move often but once up, it is quite and very easy to get in and out of. One of the safest stands out there.

I bet its ok in the showroom; but put on some hunting clothes and try not to get the bottom from closing on you as you leave the hunt....looks really dangerous in that sense

thumbs down From: Bullseye
Creative, but I don't think practical entering your stand at 4am. Might forget to close the gate. It's a hell of a ride as you reach for that coffee!

What about steps coming off the side like a ladder?

From a safety standpoint thumbs up, but ain't no way I'm paying 300 bucks for a lock-on.

Handy and a lot safer if you use it correctly.

I could be wrong, but looks like it would be noisy. Also, how much of your crap is going to get hung up on it trying to get through the opening? I have enough trouble trying to be quiet without 2 hinged metal doors to slam shut. If this stuff doesn't happen, I take back all my comments.

Where I hunt any metalic sound, like gates slamming shut, insures you won't see anything al day long.

Climging to the side would be easier than trying to wiggle thru the bottom.IMHO

Looks like you'd need a crane to set it in a tree. What's it weight?? 50+#??

Door too small, probably noisey, hard to install it.

I'd have to see it, but if it adds safety then it's cool.

Not so great for fat guys, or when there is snow and freezing rain.

I think it's a good idea, but late season with a lot of clothes on it might be difficult to fit through the opening. If something caught while climbig into the stand you might lift the stand and cause it to slip. Plus it must weigh a ton and a half.

An accident waiting to happen - more hinges, more squeeks, more noise at critical times.

slip off your ladder, get pinned in between the two halfs of the floor? No thanks.

IBEP tells us to climb DOWN INTO your stand. I agree.

i think it would be a lot easier to get in to your treestand. but the price is kind of up there so i'm going to make my own.

Climbing up through a hole in an old wooden platform may have been safer, but for that kind of money, there are some very safe and easier to put-up stands available. I too wonder how a hunter with a fanny pack, heavy clothing, day pack, is gonna fit through there. Probably not a bad stand, just think there are many other better ones. Anxious to hear how hard it is to set up.

looks like you could get stuck in the platform (trap door)

thumbs up From: Big Buck
Looks good but I would hate to pay $300 just to have it stolen on public land.

thumbs down From: Bob from MontCo
Dangerous. You never want a platform to open. Plus it looks like the bombay doors on a B-52.

thumbs down From: snakeeater
Imagine trying to get a 250 pound bowhunter in winter clothing up through that opening. Not to mention you have to then set the platform pieces back down so that you can step on them, and where do you stand while you are doing that. It looks like an idea that someone worked hard to make it work.

Actually wondered why it wasn't available before. Seems like a critical time of getting into the stand by swinging out around and onto it would go away. Many mentioned potential noise. If that is a factor, I'll bet the manuf. worked hard to limit or eliminate it. I'd give it a try.

looks unsafe what do you stand on before you get the platform down

thumbs up From: DMC
I like it alot.

Noise: What stand isn't noisey when you are climbing in and out of it? Other than that, gravity supplies the noise suppression you need. Add a couple weather strips around the opening of those doors and it's very quiet. Would make raising or lowering gear easier.

thumbs down From: Bogenschütze
Okay, I'll give it a thumbs-up, but only because I'm willing to take a closer look before rejecting it. I sure can't say the same about the previous crapola...

Great idea, nobody would ever steel that contraption.

thumbs down From: Doug Fir
I think having the hole there makes this stand to unsafe. even if it is only for a few moments.

thumbs down From: PuffDaddy
My luck ,, I would put it on upsidedown..

thumbs down From: Skyking
How heavy is this thing. It looks like a pain to set up.

thumbs down From: Rush
Well what the inventor is trying to create is a great idea. However, the noise factor is a definate unattractive and unavoidable factor. The other problem is that we all would have to weigh 50lbs to ge to the seat. I am by no means a heavy weight but nearly no clearance in what looks to be a 20 inch wide stand to slide through it.

Let’s see, I could see someone finding me hanging by my head… Good idea though I am too fat to use it.

I like the stand but the price is high for a stand that someone will steal at thier first given chance.

no comment

thumbs up From: luv2bowhunt
With my luck when it was time to come down the doors would be stuck and wouldnt open with my climbing stick directly below it and no way of getting out of the stand
